Kay's Pretzels are gluten-free.
Kay s Naturals has surveyed the vast landscape of so-called nutritious foods and determined that the missing link is a Better Balance of protein, carbohydrates, fiber and fats. Kay s all-natural, gluten-free line seeks to fill this gap with food that has a healthy balance of great taste, low calories, lean soy protein, zero cholesterol, lower carbohydrates and high fiber. Our foods also provide a complete amino acid profile.
Cost of Protein vs. Cost of Sugar and Starch
Most snacks and cereals are made of 80-90% starch and sugar. This is because starch and sugar are cheap. Protein, on the other hand, costs 15-20 times more than starch or sugar. Thus, most snack and cereal companies avoid using protein in their foods, and even when they use protein, it is only a small percentage (8-10%) of the final product. Kay s Naturals products are 35% protein. In addition, all Kay s Naturals foods are always free of artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors and preservatives.
A recent study from Harvard Medical School found that most gluten free products currently available in the market place are high in starch and that many gluten-free formulations lack essential nutrients.
